e upsets happened on e 1st nite. man utd n juventus were beaten. porto were veli hardworking n got e dying injury time goal dat put them thru. depor had a more comfortable ride into e quarters. lyon n chelsea were expected 2 go thru as they held strong 2 their 1st leg advantages. just now i watched real madrid going past bayern munich, ac milan going thru after a scare, arsenal as expected 2 go thru with monaco as well. so there u have it, 2 from england, 2 from france, 2 from spain, 1 from italy n 1 from portugal into e last 8.

real's defence was not bad 2nite. salgado, helguera, meija n raul bravo were all veli hardworking protecting their goal after zidane scored from a veli close range volley. zidane was e wizard with incredible skills thru-out e whole match, controlling e ball in great admiration from e crowds. e match however turned quite ugly with alot of confrontations. real will pay dearly if uefa again came in n suspend players like wat they did with roberto carlos.

i bet with my fren over e match of man utd over a glass of teh c peng. hehe! i won since porto managed 2 draw. well, i think man utd were not applying enuf pressure on their opponents as they r alwiz famous 4. many still complain about e disallowed goal by paul scholes which was ruled 2 b offside. henry scored a double just now n surely arsenal r 1 of e favs 2 beat into e finals. another team 1 will wan 2 avoid will b milan, e previous season's champs. watever it will b, e draw in e last 8 will b veli interesting.

1 player dat caught my eyes was bayern's young winger bastian schweinsteiger. man, tis name is even harder 2 spell than e governor who is also e terminator! haha! he will b another future star 2 watch! has been phenomenal n bringing in some impact 4 fc bayern n e young lad is just 20 years old tis year!

oh well, time 2 SLEEP!
